nice shot, not the best example of use of neg space...

I find the tree to the left of the mirror a little distracting; I'd have tried cropping a little from the left and bottom. I like pretty much everything else about it -- maybe tipping the mirror down a touch would make the rows of trees more parallel (I don't know if it would look better or not, but it would be nice to see).

not much negative space here, although it is a great photo

The combination of the lighting and the composition make this a very interesting photograph. Nicely done!

I'm not real convinced of the negative space here, but I do really like the shot a lot.

I like the effect. Would it be possible to make the grass a little more saturated -- it looks kinda dark to me. I like the reflection. Good job at focusing both forward and behind you equally well. karmat

I like the way its cropped.

beautiful shot dont like the title though
09/20/2002 03:28:00 AM
This ones a little too dark for me. It's a great shot and I just wish it was lighter. 5

Clever. I like it. It definitely draws attention back and forth between your subject and your neg space. Nicely done. 7, just-married

Very nice. I would have leveled the mirror a bit more, but the colors and detail are great! 8 -mjcecil

nice pic but a reflection isn't negative space, in my opinion
09/18/2002 11:46:00 AM
I think (IMHO) that a better link to negative space would be for the reflection in the mirror to be as shown with all the interest, and the background behind it to be completely empty, no trees, as little of anything as possible, preferably all sky. I don't imagine that would be easy, just a suggestion in terms of what would make this more relevant for me. I appreciate this comment is according to my own definitions of neg space and your mileage may vary.

Very nicely done. My only complaint would be that it's a bit dark for me. Your subject matter is great. Focus looks good. I'm not too sure about the "negative space" in this one. 8

woah, this is a cool picture

That's a cool mirror :o) The exposure is a bit underdone maybe. Tough lighting, but it's a tad too dark. It's a really cool pic tho not the best example of negative space IMHO. 7 ~indigo997

wow. nice. cmcvety.
09/16/2002 11:20:00 PM
Great photo. Very well done. I don't understand the negative space
09/16/2002 10:32:00 PM
Very creative. But, I am not sure what you consider negative space. Perhaps the space between the trees?
09/16/2002 05:30:00 PM
nice imagination. i don't know if you are going to get lower scores or not but i think that some may think that your negative space isn't really negative considering its in the mirror and behind it too.

Nice composition here, creative shot. Well done. Score 7 Justine
